Diet and Cancer: Separating Facts from Fiction


The internet is awash with theories on how what you eat can affect your chances of developing and beating a diagnosis of cancer. From superfoods to fad diets, much of this information can be misleading and contradictory. This Decoding Cancer talks aims to separate the facts around diet and cancer from the fiction, so that everyone is empowered to make healthy food options based on the best dietary advice for them.

This talk is brought to you in partnership with the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute (INDI).




‘Diet and Cancer: Separating Facts from Fiction’ will hear from Prof Mike Gibney, Professor of Food and Health at the UCD Institute of Food and Health, UCD. With over four decades of experience working in nutritional research and academia, Prof Gibney is well placed to debunk some of the myths around nutrition and diet.

We will also hear from Fiona Roulston RD, Dietitian Manager at St Luke’s Radiation Oncology Network, Dublin. A CORU registered professional dietitian, Fiona will discuss the importance of good nutrition during cancer treatment; how to cope with unplanned weight loss and treatment side effects; dietary advice after cancer treatment; and how the public can access dietetic services and reliable nutrition information.




The talk is free and open to everyone – from members of the public looking for ways to reduce their risk of cancer by eating well, to people with cancer seeking advice on dietary needs, or to those who have gone through a cancer experience and want to know how their diet can help them live longer, happier lives.

If you would like to attend, please register your attendance on Eventbrite. Please feel free to share this invitation and following the conversation on social media #DecodingCancer.
